Count me in as a new AVM 60 owner. Placed the order today with Crutchfield and the 20% off was a nice incentive. I was considering the Marantz 8802a and Emotiva XMC-1. Emotiva could not tell me when the XMC-1 would be in available for shipment. I had a Arcam AVR550 but I had problems with the Dirac software but I enjoyed the 2 channel audio sound it introduced to my man cave system (see signature below). I am hoping the AVM 60 sounds better or similar to the Arcam AVR550. My wife wanted me to to go with the Marantz 8802a just because of the name. I should receive the AVM60, stayed for my listening impressions. Looking to improve upon my 2 channel listening but still want to watch movies.
